Program

OVERVIEW OF 200 HOUR MINDFULNESS MEDITATION TEACHER TRAINING COURSE

Yoga is the science of union of body, mind and spirit. Meditative awareness or meditation is considered to be the most supreme phenomenon as far as the union with reality is concerned. This meditative awareness, attention or observation becomes the central thread or core practice of all eight limbs of yoga.

Knowingly or unknowingly we are continuously looking for the solution of body, breath, mind and heart issues. Usually, we repress them or dump them on someone else, both of which are very destructive or trying to replace them with positive ones which are only skin deep. However, we don’t have any access to the main source of answers unless we look within. Just imagine how it will feel to be the master of your own life, joy and peace, rather than constantly feel like the pawn of other people and situations.

Yoga Essence Rishikesh provides a solid platform to experience the state of meditation and also find out the source of answer to important issues of life with help of huge varieties of meditation practices from different traditions, Yoga Nidra practices, Mantra Chanting, Kirtan, practical application of Yoga Philosophy, psychology etc. through 200 hour mindfulness meditation teacher training course. The 200-hour Meditation teacher training course mainly focused on experiential and transformational aspect along with imparting the skill and methods to teach and share the meditation practices with other.
